Daily Sports Betting Preview 08/09/2021 – NBA Summer League, White Sox/Twins, Madison Keys Odds

  • The Charlotte Hornets have EVEN odds against the Sacramento Kings for the NBA Summer League.
  • The Under 9.5 runs is the slight betting favorite for the Chicago White Sox vs Minnesota Twins game.
  • Tennis player Rebecca Marino is a five-game underdog against Madison Keys for their match.

LAS VEGAS – The NBA Summer League starts its second day of games, the MLB has a limited slate of games and the WTA Rogers Cup begins its round of 64 beginning on Monday.

NBA Summer League: Hornets vs Kings

The Charlotte Hornets started their Summer League campaign with a loss to the Portland Trailblazers on Sunday. However, the Trailblazers are the significant betting favorite to win the Summer League, and online sportsbooks may be overreacting to the loss according to the lines currently posted.

Hornets vs Kings Moneyline Odds

  • Charlotte Hornets EVEN
  • Sacramento Kings -120

The Sacramento Kings have some talented players on their roster, but there’s not much information on how the team will play together on the court. As for the Hornets, they’ve already proven that they can hang with a near-NBA level team as Portland’s Summer League roster has Michael Beasley, Kenneth Faried, and Emmanuel Mudiay.

Sports betting sites may be making a mistake on who the favorite to actually win is for this matchup.

MLB Betting: White Sox vs Twins

The total set for the game between the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins may be a bit inflated due to a limited sample size from the Twins’ starter, Beau Burrows. Burrows is a spot starter who cannot go more than a few innings. In his four starts this season, he has logged nine innings with a whopping 11.00 ERA. Those betting on the MLB shouldn’t be scared away by such a small pitch punch.

White Sox vs Twins Total Odds

  • Over 9.5 -110
  • Under 9.5 -115

The Twins bullpen has floated around the average to just above average range in FIP and xFIP over the last month, meaning once Burrows gets through his 2-3 innings, the bullpen should be able to hold their own, especially against a team that’s been struggling at the plate. The White Sox have the second-lowest batting average in the MLB over the last month (.224).

Chicago has Lucas Giolito pitching who carries a 3.98 ERA and 1.16 WHIP onto the mound for this game. He allowed six earned runs in his last outing, but Giolito has only allowed 3+ earned runs in back-to-back starts once this season and that occurred back in April.

WTA Odds: Madison Keys vs Rebecca Marino

Madison Keys is ranked No. 26 in the tennis world rankings and will be facing Rebecca Marino who is ranked No. 220. Keys is a sizable -550 favorite on the moneyline, but the match could be prolonged by Marino’s serving ability.

Keys vs Marino Total Odds

  • Over 19.5 -115
  • Under 19.5 -115

Marino wins 78.2% of her service games while Keys wins just 66.5% of hers. Keys does have the advantage on the return as she wins 32% of her return games compared to Marino’s 21.2%. Marino’s game plan is more or less to win her service games and hope for a break here and there throughout the match. If she’s to be successful on service, the OVER should be able to hit.
